One Response to Rainbow Lake RV Park

  1. Dee Anderson on October 11, 2011 at 2:03 am

    We recently stayed at rainbow lake and were extremely impressed with the helpful and friendly nature of the owners/managers. There was no one at the office when we arrived but there was a sign that said self register and pick your own site. We did just that and a little while later the owner comes up not to ask if we registered or payed but to see if we would like a picnic table or if there was anything we needed. We not only registered but stayed a few days because we were so impressessed with the area and the laundry/restroom facilities. We were allowed to take up two spaces and though we were close to the highway we hardly noticed since the trees are large and mature. Everything is on your honor rather than coin operated. We loved our stay and plan to stay again next year.
